ESSAY TOPIC : Legal scholar Kimberlé  Williams Crenshaw introduced the theory of identity intersectionality (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimberl
%C3%A9_Williams_Crenshaw#Intersectionality and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersectionality) . After reading the two wikipedia entries, consider the role of
intersectionality as influential in one’s perception of and experience in the city. Specifically consider the social categories of race, class and gender. Select Â
any two individuals that differ in each of these categories (and other categories such as religion, sexual orientation, able-bodiedness, gender identity, education,
citizenship status, etc.) and describe how they might experience the city differently from one another.  For example how would a wealthy, white, protestant,
straight male experience the city differently from a working class, middle eastern, muslim lesbian female? You can create ANY two identities to compare and they may
share one or more social identities (i.e. they do not have to be as different as the provided examples). You should choose at least 5 categories to compare(like the
examples), looking across each of them to discuss how they contribute to different (or similar) social urban experiences (including economic, political,
environmental.etc experiences). You should cite at least 3 references (preferably articles/readings from the course) that support your analysis.
